Los Angeles, CA - Net artist Christina McPhee brings her multimedia installation “Memoirs of a Cyborg” to Xin in the hip Melrose Heights area (West of Fairfax) at 8064 Melrose Avenue, 90046. There will be an opening reception and artist meet & greet on Friday, October 25th, from 7:00pm - 10:00pm with an open bar in the adjacent breezeway. The exhibit runs through November 14, 2002. For store hours or directions please call Xin at 323-653-2188.

“Memoirs of a Cyborg” is a transmedia installation that imagines the memories of a feminine cyborg, trapped behind the digital screen. Her presence is seen and heard in fragments of image, sound streams, and performance video -- an erotic architecture of the invisible world behind the screen, beyond the web.

For her Xin show, McPhee redefines the Melrose high-edge retail space with looped performance DVD video and spatial divides made of translucent Panelite (www.e-panelite.com), that are printed in transparent duraclear scrims. Video soundtracks loop digital keyboard and voice improv remixed in ambient twelve-tone style. Music sources derive from her 2002 electronic ambient CD, 47Reds+SonicPersephone (mp3 downloads at www.naxsmash.net.

Christina McPhee is a California-based digital performance artist who works collaboratively in architectural design, sound art, electronic poetry and the net. Her critical writing and net art has received international attention this year. A new article, “Aphasia and Parrhesia” on cyberpresence has just appeared on the Italian new media site, www.neural.it/english . An elegy to the cyborg in the invisible city, “47Reds” appears this month in the fall 2002 issue of the acclaimed online digital culture journal, Metal and Flesh/Chair et Metal based in Montreal (www.chairetmetal.com). Her new work was screened live at the Institute of Contemporary Art, London and Softform/Hive Projects, Toronto earlier this year, and at FILE2002 Electronic Language Symposium, Sao Paulo, this summer. She presents critical presentations on the electronic space of the net, most recently last month at Cornell University for the conference “Digital Terror and Wired Ruins” (http://ctheorymultimedia.cornell.edu/issue3/). A digital installation of her work is currently up at the California Museum of Photography UC Riverside/Digital Studio's show “Impromptu” which runs through January 9, 2003 www.cmp.ucr.edu/photography/impromptu  “Memoirs of a Cyborg” will debut online in Brussels and Helsinki via www.boringart.com  on October 31st.
